I’ve been doing an experiment and notating a real problem with the way my crate pulls have been going. My latest was today when I did the Shivs skin crate. I did receive the skin which I am lucky for but another issue exists. As I did my pulls I got a lot, and I mean a lot of energy. But as it’s 21+% I can semi understand. But it should be split with an equal amount of cash. Which I only pulled once.
Unfortunately this wasn’t my only problem. I pulled Shank frags 8 times today. No keel. Which again should have been at least a couple. Even in RNG this is highly unlikely with probabilities and percentages where they are.
Before today I was taking note again that the pull rates are awkward. If someone in my alliance pulls a skin they end up pulling the same skin 2-3 more times before the event is over. From a couple of alliance members, specifically, if you pull Artemis from the gilded crate you pull her a few more times. Another member pulled Yeager a few times. I personally get Salvatore 2 out of 3 gilded crate pulls.
My problem with the algorithm is that, as it seems through my experimentation and data gathering from others, that once you get a crate pull you keep getting the same pull. Which in probability is IMPOSSIBLE.
The stats of the crates is wrong. The possibility of pulling the most rare and continuing is not possible. How is it that RNG deals the same hand over and over? Simply it isn’t RNG.
I’d like others that read this post to tell me if they are seeing what I am seeing or is this a limited coincidental experience and I am wrong here.
